BioAFM/Microsystems Laboratory conducts atomic force microscopy (AFM) based single-molecule and single-cell research. Laboratory houses an advanced commercial AFM system capable of measuring forces at picoNewton levels and displacement at Angstrom level.
|A major focus of the research is to develop better performing novel microsystems for biofluidic applications using micro- and nanotechnology. Currently the research efforts are funded by European Union 7th Framework Programme and Tubitak. The specific scientific aim is to probe protein-protein and single cell-protein interactions, to study allosteric mechanisms and microrheology.
In addition to biomolecular research the BioAFM/Microsystems Laboratory develops novel microsystem-based sensors and actuators for various applications. Current efforts are in large arrays for infrared and terahertz imaging.
